Juventus have managed to pip Manchester United to the signing of Boca Juniors youngster Rodrigo Bentancur.
Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici has revealed a number of clubs, including United, made offers for the 19-year-old midfielder
However, apparently Juventus had first option due to a stipulation in the deal that saw Carlos Tevez return to Boca last year, and the Serie A side have secured his signature.
“When I was in Switzerland recently Juventus informed me that that they were going to activate the option so I will travel to Turin soon in order to complete the deal,’ Angelici told TyC Sports.
“I think it’s very good business for Boca. Juventus will pay £6.7million for 50 per cent of his rights.
“He must have something because there were a lot of clubs interested. ‘Real Madrid made a proposal, Manchester [United] also came and Milan made a £12.5m formal offer to sign him.”
